Received  April 2011 Revised  September 2011 Published  January 2012

In the absence of stagnation points, we derive the dispersion relation for periodic travelling waves of small amplitude propagating at the surface of water with a layer of constant vorticity adjacent to the flat bed within an irrotational flow.
